, this is "democracy now!" >> in egypt, the united states followed standard operating procedure. standard procedure when one of your favorite dictators gets into trouble. first, the support him as long as possible. but if it becomes really impossible, say the army turns against him, then you send him out to pasture and get the intellectual quest to issue declarations about your love of democracy, then try to restore the bill system as much as possible. >> "who owns the world?" with the presidential election less than two away, we turn to a major new address by noam chomsky on pressing topics not addressed in the president to campaign -- climate change, latin america's break with the united states, the arab spring, and the danger nuclear-weapons already pose in the middle east. >> israel refuses to allow inspections at all, refuses to join the non-proliferation treaty, has hundreds of nuclear weapons, advanced delivery system, and a long record of violence and repression. >> all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we are
in the united states. but then on wednesday, i saw a thing where bain capital closing down its plant in illinois. ann romney is a reserved shareholder of the bain capital. how is the -- and romney is a reserved shareholder and bain capital. host: let us limit tomorrow humor. this is from last night. instead of a being from the al smith dinner, an appearance by president obama on comedy central's the daily show with john stuart. [video clip] >> how many times a week does he show up in a wet bathing suit to a meeting? >> we had to stop it. we have to put tiles down. but i have to say, he looks pretty good. >host: that is president obama n comedy central with jon storage. he also made comments about libya. we will look at where the candidates stand on foreign policy, foreign affairs and campaign 2012. for now, we are looking at humor. and what role you think plays. does it help or the track to the image you have of him? kentucky, on our line for independents. caller: my comment is but i do not really care for it. i think it just cheapens the issues. they are very serious to people out your sufferin
at that point, bun of the biggest banks in the united states. things vice president changed. not in major terms of the bank. should be working for the bank as a whole. for the customer they shouldn't be seeking big rewards in themselves. contrast that to what goes on themselves. tremendous part of the conversation not just in bonuses. compared to what they would have been 20 or 25 years ago. no what kind of climate does that create? they get to elaborate a little bit. people who criticize this rule, they are sure to speculative access. infact, a lot of things are at the heart of the banking crisis. why did that go wild? i would argue that the kpep sags practices crept in into trading parts of the bank. so the lending offices said, how can hay make a lot of money and get a big bonus? over simplifying a little bit. it's true. the chairman of the citi bank. the biggest bank. a couple of trillion dollar banks. he said to me, we put these two different kinds of organizations together and it different work. and it's a cultural problem. you didn't just regular rate the losses. it created a tension in
of the united states. >>> the obama campaign is calling that an out of context attack. the numbers they say mr. biden buried line including that that reflect high unemployment rising debt and smaller paychecks over the last four years. >> newt gingrich is talking about. >> newt beginnihe went on the r what he has to do. >>> it is a clear-cut situation. romney has to be clear and factual and stick to his grounds. he has to recognize he's up against the incumbent president of the united states. rom hee will t romney will try r call him. romney is going to have to communicate past layer and past obama to reach the american people. if he does that i think he could have a very good night and you could see a very good race by thursday morning. >> later in the show you are going to hear from romney's former debate coach who is with him during the primary. oo tonight's debate is exactly what we would like to hear from you on today. what would you like to hear from the candidates tonight? send your comments over to us. tweet them to us at foxfriendsfirst@foxnews.com. >> those are the top stories making
inability to understand what's going on in the middle east and the threats that the united states, israel, and our arab friends face and inindicative of a larger problem globally. i think for governor romney to articulate a peace through strength through foreign policy will be a substantial contrast with what the obama administration has failed to achieve. >> everyone's focusing on benghazi at the moment. before we get to this, talk about the world view. look at egypt turning his back on must b mu.you've got russia,e islamists. tell me more about your view of that world view and how you think mr. romney could define it tomorrow. >> well, i think this goes to the basic issue of america's place in the world. do you think as president obama does that america's too strong, that we've had too much influence, that we're kansa disproportionately successful around the worn america that withdraws, that's less assertive will make other nations more favorably inclined to us and make the world more peaceful. that's like looking at the world through the wrong end of a telescope. i think the notion of
powder with the maritime powers, like brittany is to be our today, the united states. and then, there is an american and he put these two ideas together. and where the two great powers, the land power and d.c. power come together, he called the shout about. and the middle east is located in one of the world's great shutterbugs. the interesting thing is about them is that small states have the ability to shift the power from one large side to the other, simply because it depends on which side they're on or which side they decide to shift two. in the middle east, the old part with syria and is today. but, after the fall of the soviet union, after the end of the cold war, there was another heart. since the entire east were taking place at that time, when the circulation state joined the middle east, when afghanistan pushed the edge of the middle east. and so today, we have a second part inside the middle east and that is iran. and those two cards, with their particular allies are causing this growing second global cold war. now the first indication we have is that is the reincarna
of the united states. the combined population of this country is roughly 21% of the total population of the united states, but that conglomeration of states is who gets to pick our next president. which means the equivalent of a country the size of france is deciding who the president is of a country the size of us. that little france-sized country gets tons and tons of attention now, to the point where even smallish population centers within this tiny bollous of states get lavish attention from the candidates. they even end up being the subjects of the candidates' flattering word play. >> as i was coming in, i got to meet the principal and the superintendent and i was saying, i stopped on the way down at a diner, had some breakfast, and someone said to me, ohioan said, where you coming from? and i said, dayton. they said, where you going? i said, marion. he said, i read in the paper, you said you love ohio. and that must be true, you've gone from dayton, ohio, to marrying ohio. i said, i never thought of it that way, i didn't think i was marrying y'all, but it's great to be here. it
and political leader imran khan said the drone strikes are fostering hatred of the united states. >> these drone attacks are a violation of international law. these drone attacks are a violation of the human rights of the pakistani people. do we all condemn them? we want to send a message to america, the more drone attacks to carry out, the more the people will grow to hate you and raise their arms against you. our tribal people will not be scared off with drone attacks. >> more than 30 u.s. citizens with the group codepink traveled to pakistan to take part in the march and meet with drone strike victims. >> the illegal, immoral, a brutal attacks on the innocent people of waziristan and the fatah region must in now. these are illegal drone strikes carried out by cia. cia is a civilian organization using military equipment rid this is a war crime. >> they are illegal. they are against international law. they invade the sovereignty of pakistan and they are not productive. >> an u.s. protest held in solidarity with the march in pakistan, 10 people were arrested on friday at the hancock field air na

worldwide of the united states military? two minutes, virgil goode. >> as i said, if i'm elected president i will balance the budget, and part of the cuts have to be in the department of defense. we cannot do as mitt romney and paul ryan suggest increase military funding by $2 trillion over the next decade. i support a strong defense. but we need to retrench rather than trying to be the policemen of the world. we have too many soldiers, too many troopers scattered around the world. our presence needs to be decreased around the world, not increased, and the united states should stop trying to be the overseer of the world. that will save us billions and billions of dollars. [applause] >> all right. governor johnson. >> we need to provide ourselves with a strong national defense. the operative word here is defense, not offense and not nation building. [applause] >> the biggest threat to our national security is the fact that we're bankrupt, that we're borrowing and printing money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar we spend. in promising to submit a balanced budget to congress in the ye
with the demonstrations themselves. but from their point of view, and this is, this is the dilemma from the united states too, this is the dilemma from the united states, you know, iran has exploited situations before. it has exploited situations before. there's the fear that it could exploit this one again, and that is why when we look, we do not know what to make of this group and where it stands on questions of democracy and participation and where it stands in its relationships with iran. we don't -- we have concerns about that. that are hampering our decision making. is there any other question? it's 12:00, we really need to close because of the cameras. so i guess i will say at this point thank you very much for coming. thank you to the panelists. [applause] and, again, we have a web site, www.mepc.org. i hope you visit it. [inaudible conversations] >> the middle east council wrapping up this discussion on foreign policy choices facing the next administration. we are going from this to the heritage foundation live now for a discussion on russia's role in the syrian civil war. this is just getting s
for united states citizens first. >> as double of the mexico i ran a completely out of the political system, i got elected republican governor and state that was 2-1 democrat and made a name for myself of vetoing legislation. i'd be done more legislation than the other 49 governors in the country combined. i b to add 750 bills, and thousands of line item vetoes, it made a difference when it can to billions of dollars worth of spending, it made a difference when it came to laws that would have told you are by what i could or couldn't do in the bedroom. host: here johnson reports that he will appear on the ballot in 48 states including some of battlegrounds. and in colorado, new hampshire and an ohio -- johnson could be a thorn in romney side if the election is close. and in virginia, virgil goode could be a problem for gov. romney in that state as well. here is more from a third-party presidential debate. with the other candidates.

, that's what t big banks do. nobody else in the united states or in the uk is equally committed to making it medium sized. eat before the crisis or during the crisis. the importance to protect people with their money and give them a safe place to put it. those are all public functions. they're all protected every place. when push comes to shove, they get double. you shouldn't do that when people are just engaged in trading for their own account. without any public responsibilities as i see it. that's the heart of the matter. >> i'm very pleased you would come in at this ime. i think we suffer from a major confusion that you can help us sort out. in the u.s. they're returning following the advice. and we have in the independent banking commission a halfway house. and it should go the whole way. this is a completely wrong characterization that i think of what you're saying, you're saying they can't a wide rapg of functions that can be alongside the payment system. then there are another type of transactions that shouldn't be there at all. they should go off right to a separate ins
comprise not haphazardly but purposefully a history of the united states for the last 200 or so years. a number of these books have been best sellers. traitor to his class and the first american were both finalists for the pulitzer prize and you can see h. w. brands on tv all the time if you go to the history channel or turn on the tv, there he is. this book is -- i will hold this up again so you can see and recognize it easily at the book signing tend, it is a tremendous biography of ulysses grant filled with stuffed i certainly never knew and was delighted to find out. it is very authoritatively and readable. before we get to grant himself i wanted to ask bill a broad question about biography. here at the book festival there are a number of biographers. i have read several of these already, robert caro's latest volume in his massive history, biography of lyndon johnson. janet reed's biography leonard cohen, all these people at the book festival among others. david maraniss is here with a book about obama. i was curious because all these books are so different in terms of authors's a
of the united states, alan, i would order the secretary of the treasury to immediately buy up the bad home loan mortgages in america and renegotiate at the new value of those homes, at the diminished value of those homes and let people be able to make those payments and stay in their homes. is it expensive? yes. but we all know, my friends, until we stabilize home values in america, we're never going to start turning around and creating jobs and fixing our economy. and we've got to give some trust and confidence back to america. i know how the do that, my friends. and it's my proposal. it's not senator obama's proposal, it's not president bush's proposal. but i know how to get america working again, restore our economy and take care of working americans. thank you. >> senator, we have one minute for a discussion here. obviously, the powers of the treasury secretary have been greatly expanded. the most powerful officer in the cabinet now. hank paulson says he won't stay on. who do you have in mind to appoint to that very important post? senator mccain? >> not you, tom. >> no, with good reason. >
basis. pretty much every day, i will look at scotus blog, supreme court of the united states. or there is a blog called "how appealing." there are a variety of blogs, written by law professors. some are more conservative and some are more liberal. i will look at those every once in awhile and see what people are saying and thinking and writing about legal issues. i find them interesting and occasionally useful. you know. it is the world i come from, as you know. i am not going to say, i am never going to read the law review article again. >> do you read them before, as you are trying to sort through cases? >> usually only when the briefs point them out. i rarely do an independent search. >> you talked about the role of clerks in sorting through the cert petitions. in recent years, the court has taken many fewer cases than it did in an earlier area. -- earlier era. maybe there are fewer circuits and fewer important issues, but that seems unlikely. do you have a sense of whether the court is taking the right number? >> the truth is, i do not know if it is unlikely, for this rea
have it tammy baldwin running for the united states senate here and wisconsin. i believe she is also what we call the house of representatives, did she give up her thing and there as the house of representatives when she ran? i am not sure. but i want to say, i am really -- you talk about medicare. when they took away $716 billion of medicare, that scares me. also, how can you broach or stand up for, i am sorry, but our president. and in benghazi, when that whole group allied for weeks on what happened. -- when the whole group lied. when the new two hours later the truth. i am sorry for you, sir. and you talk about spending money, about a recall, $13 million before the recall. ridiculous. thank you. guest: there's a lot going on and that col. let us see what i can do to address it. tammy baldwin is representing the district since 1998. she did give up her seat to run for the united states senate. the democrat is one to the next member of congress. and reference to the $716 billion, that was money that was allocated to actually defray costs and make medicare solvent for a little longe
attack in the united states last year. talk about credibility. when this administration says all options are on the table, they send all these mixed signals. in order to solve this peacefully, you have to have the ayatollahs change their minds. look at where they are. it is because this administration has no credibility on this issue. this administration watered down sanctions. now we have been in place because of congress. the military option is not being viewed as credible. make sure we have credibility. under a romney administration, we will have credibility. >> incredible. do you think there is any possibility the entire world would have joined us? russia and china? these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions. period. when the governor is asked about it, he said, we have to keep the sanctions. you're going to go to war? the interesting thing, how are they going to prevent war? saye is nothing more they'd we should do than what we have already done. with regard to the ability of the united states to take action militarily, it is not in my purview to talk about c

for the election of united states senators by united states legislature. we got rid of that in 1913 with the 17th amendment. it worked pretty well. most citizens today would find it bizarre not to be able to directly elect their senators. it is even more important to do that in terms of electing a president. i think we got it in reverse. at the 17th amendment was correct. what we should have started as to whether direct election of the president. represent all of america. host: falls church, virginia. on our line for republicans. caller: i happen to agree with the senator. i think the electoral college gives protection to the modern state. i hear your point, too. and there's a concern there. one. have always had, and i never hear anyone talk about this. has there ever any been studies or thoughts about -- i do not know about doing it by county, if you have a state like florida were different counties but different ways, at least your vote doesn't get completely thrown out. and maybe there is more fairer presentation that way. he could speak to that i would appreciate that. host: she was talking a

dred scott decision, united states supreme court confirmed the southern constitutional view. republicans in contrast, never, no matter the supreme court. republicans would allow no more slaves in any territory. abraham lincoln was elected in november 1860. a month later, the united states congress came into session. members of congress put forth various compromise proposals, a critical portion of all in some way dealt with the division of the territory. most often their was a proposal to extend some kind of dividing line, westward beyond the louisiana purchase all the way to the border of california. now, after this rather lengthy preface i'm going to get to my main topic of why lincoln rejected on meaningful compromise, which dealt with the territories. but there must be one thing more. i'm going to talk about three different men tonight. one of you, one of them, all of you know, those men, abraham lincoln and we was and what he did. the other two are not so well known. so probably a number of your familiar with henry clay, the great kentucky statesman. probably a cucumber
. that is what the country is for. that is why i am running for president of the united states, and that is why i want your vote. >> four more years! >> what i talked about last not was a new economic patriotism, a patriotism based on the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle- class. that means we export more products and we outsourced and fewer jobs. in the last three years we came together to reinvent a dying auto industry that is back on top of the world. we have created more than 500,000 new manufacturing jobs, so now you have a choice. we closed tax breaks, and we reward companies that create jobs in the united states. that is what we are looking for. we can help small business double their exports and create 8 million manufacturing jobs. i want to control our energy. after 30 years of inaction, we have raised fuel standards by the middle of the next decade so your cars and trucks will be going twice as far on a gallon of gas. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from sources like wind and solar. thousands of americans have jobs buil
because the majority of people in the united states are white. this is what i want the white democrats to realize. if you do not support president obama, it is going to be hard for african americans to come out and support another white democrat. the white democrats are not supporting statewide black politicians. that is the reason why no black democrats can get elected in the senate. look at florida. you best come out and support president obama because it will be hard to get blakcs out of [indiscernible] host: a comment from joe on twitter -- a headline from "the washington post" today -- one other story, this from "usa today" this morning. we want to hear what is driving your votes with just 12 days to go before the election. charlie from virginia on the independence lin t line. caller: i will be supporting the libertarian candidate gary johnson. the only candidate who can turn this country around. he wants to stop intervening in all these wars and balance the budget now. our government is broke. yeah, everyone should check out gary johnson. he is a libertarian and running for presi

to the united states in january of this year, a bangladeshi national. came here they say trying to conduct or carry out a terrorist attack in the united states. and only this morning the feds say that he met them at a warehouse and then he drove to another location where he tried to detonate the bomb and that's when they arrested him. they said that he told them he wrote "that he wanted to destroy america. and that before all this happened he went so far as to make a suicide tape in which according to prosecutors he said "we will not stop until we obtain victory or martyr dom." they say he wanted to target america's economy and bring it down. again, the bomb was inert. they were able to arrest him before he blew up the bomb, which really wasn't one to begin with. but he will be making an appearance in court this afternoon. i'm also told by a source with information who is very close to the investigation because a lot of this sting operation was put on videotape and at some point during the course of this operation, this investigation, this court proceeding, we may get video of this at some
around the united states government, including the united nations, to susan rice, to the white house. there's not a chance that the cia would withhold this information from the white house or probably the united nations, our office in the united nations, either. it's just the way it works. it's a system. it's almost mechanical. it's hard to short-circuit. in addition, the cia director would be calling the white house and videoconferences, calling the national security council. i have never seen an attack on the united states that was not immediately reported to the white house. >> but you say it's amateur hour to allow ambassador rice to be sent out with the limited information and to say what she said, why? >> well, somebody dropped the ball. i mean, those situation reports should have been going to her office in new york. she should have been stopped from taking, you know, saying what she did. it's a true blunder in a case like this, as we've seen. you know, who did not get her the paper. if she did get the paper and still went out on the talk shows and said it was a demonstration,
